Joomla Article Inherits Modules from Referring Pages

We have a Joomla site with hundreds of articles. Our Main Menu only contains about 25 items. We maintain a Support Menu so that we can place modules on content pages not represented by the Main Menu. I have a content page with several modules on the page that contain links. When I publish the page and click on one of the links in one of the modules, the resulting content page includes all the modules from the referring page. I don't want those modules or any other modules on this page. (Of course, I want my menu modules and all the other required modules.) What do I need to do?

If I'm understanding this correctly, and the modules links are not Menu items, but, say, image link, then you could create a new hidden menu that has a published link to the page you are intending to link to.  Then have the module point to that menu item as it's link and you can then control which modules are displayed through the module manager by publishing or unpublishing the modules on that new menu.

I hope that makes sense.
